Back in the 80’s cinema was hard to come by in the African country of Ghana. Many citizens weren’t financially stable enough to own a VHS player. This is when the “mobile cinema” idea took off. Somebody had the inspired idea to rig up a van with a VHS player and roam the countryside. Offering cinema to those who might not find it anywhere else. That alone is a rad idea. But the best part was the hand-painted movie posters (inspired by VHS cover art) that accompanied the magic van. Here are some that tickle the shit out of my fancy, page but you can GOOGLEGOOGLEGOOGLE to find more if your hunger for these isn’t satiated.
